The curvy VW Beetle has one of the most iconic shapes in automotive history. So does the ’32 Ford Deuce Coupe. Mash the two together in an artful homage to ’50s hot rods and you get the Heb Rod, one of the only VW Beetles to be recognized and respected by the hardcore hot rod community. The Heb Rod was hand built to emulate the iconic Deuce Coupe while keeping its VW roots. It’s a hodgepodge of parts from different VWs and Fords. The Heb Rod has a Ford front axle, Ford wheels, and a vintage Chevrolet steering wheel. But it also has a built 1,914 cc VW engine good for 120+ horsepower. The Heb Rod has been recognized in dozens of magazines, including Rod and Custom. And in case you were wondering, it was named after the ultra-rare Hebmuller VW convertibles built in the ’50s.
